The 2017 American Music Awards not only honored the best in music this year but also the enduring spirit of the country. Recognizing the recent violence in the U.S., the awards ceremony, which aired live on ABC from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theatre, began with a tribute. Kelly Clarkson and Pink opened the show with a cover of REM's 1992 hit, "Everybody Hurts." The awards ceremony was hosted by "Black-ish" star Tracee Ellis Ross.
A picture-loving woman thought her boyfriend was taking another Instagram-worthy snap when she later realized he was actually proposing. Kayleigh Fahey and James Regatuso had just returned from a trip to Bali and Indonesia. The bride-to-be admitted to ABC News that she had thought Ragatuso, 30, would pop the question there. "But I thought it'd be cheesy to do it overseas," he said.
The 2017 American Music Awards were handed out Sunday night, honoring the best in music this year. Bruno Mars led the way in nominations with eight for the world's biggest fan-voted awards show. The "24K Magic" singer was also nominated for the top prize, Artist of the Year, along with The Chainsmokers, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Ed Sheeran. Following behind the singer, Drake, The Chainsmokers and Sheeran are tied with five nods each.
@MindaHarts It made me think so I suppose it was successful in its art. But I don't understand why it has Oscar buzz and it begs the question -- why do these types of narratives keep getting so much attention.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
